We are thrilled to announce that THE ARTIST'S WAY is BACK for 2023!
Join us starting January 29 - April for 13 weeks of kickstarting your creativity.
Who is this for?
Anyone with a creative side. Spoiler: That's ALL of us.
We invite all actors, writers, painters, clowns, sculptors, teachers, dancers, singers, (etc. forever) to use this guide to unblock their creative selves.
How will it work?
We will read Julia Cameron's The Artist's Way together. One chapter each week. We will meet for a virtual check-in on Sundays and/or Mondays to discuss any discoveries, challenges, and experiences. This safe space will serve as an accountability and inspiration group. We will have 2-3 in person artist date options. Class sizes are limited to 10.
This guide challenges us to re-inspire and redicipline our creative selves. There is a writing component and an "artist date" component each week. Don't worry though—you will never have to share anything you write. We will also have a private Facebook group to connect with other members, share thoughts, and receive encouragement. Please note, meetings may be recorded for internal purposes.
We will meet via Zoom each Monday (And a few Sundays) beginning Sunday, January 29 until the beginning of April. This will serve as an accountibility meeting and short discussion. Full schedule TBA.
About the Program
Feel free to share the information about this program! We ask participants be 18+ and ready to read.
Here is the schedule for the program. Please come to week one with the introduction, forward, and chapter 1 read if possible! It's okay if you're behind on a given week, others will share and you can catch up!
Artist Contract Page
Ready to join us? Start by printing and signing this contract. It's just for you to have as a reminder. Hang it where you can see it!
Morning Pages are three pages of longhand, stream of consciousness writing, done first thing in the morning.
There is no wrong way to do Morning Pages. They are not high art. They are not even “writing.” They are about anything and everything that crosses your mind– and they are for your eyes only. Morning Pages provoke, clarify, comfort, cajole, prioritize and synchronize the day at hand.
Do not overthink Morning Pages: just put three pages of anything on the page...and then do three more pages tomorrow.
The Artist Date is a once-weekly, festive, solo expedition to explore something that interests you.
The Artist Date need not be overtly “artistic” — think mischief more than mastery. Artist Dates fire up the
imagination. They spark whimsy. They encourage play. Since art is about the play of ideas, they feed our creative work by replenishing our inner well
of images and inspiration.
When choosing an Artist Date, it is good to ask yourself, “what sounds fun?” — and then allow yourself to try it.
